Re: “The Damascene Horse Dealer's Daughter

I appreciate what Kahf wrote, espacially her researching of her family tree and ties. Poeple nowadays hardly know their grand-parents.
I liked her love for her country of birth, though she didn't live in it only a couple of years.
Many other poeple whom we call "les-la-bas-chez-nous", when you take them for a walk in Medina Arab, often say "la bas chez nous en France, nous avons des toilettes publiques!". They forget that when the chez nous they speak about came Medina Arab, poeple knew each other and didn't need a public toilet because all households were their. And that poeple were relaxed and took their time to pee at home before getting out. It was much different from todays hurry-ups!

This peace of writing helps me to understand more Kahf's novel which i am proud doing my dissertation on it, among two others.

GO on and on damasceene queen!
